Stayed for three nights in early January 2014. The location is great for walking to many restaurants and bars as well as a Publix and LA fitness. Hotel room was good. A newer, good bed and shower. Small but clean and quiet.
Decent check-in process, friendly front desk folks and security guard but the staff weren't really familiar with the SPG platinum level; not a big deal. Valet was a bit surly and I heard the rubber coming off the tires of my Hemi Challenger rental as it went up into the garage. Hey, I'd probably do the same (and later did) with a car like that!
As far as the "hip" or "chic" factor, well personally that doesn't affect my hotel decision at all. Quiet, clean, comfortable bed is what matters to me and you will find this at the Aloft.
